Art can't really be surprised by this reaction.

He abandoned the people who were actually listening to his show. The anger from fans is completely justifiable.

I think this is the end of the line for Arthur Bell.

Trying to do Damage Control talking to a pile of angry trolls is like trying to take a crap on your food. You can do it, but what the hell.

The day off last week (or whenever it was) because of his "bad back" was the big tip-off.


Yes I thought the same thing as in "ok here we go again".

As much as I enjoy Art and his style he just is a bit of a drama queen and frankly I don't think his snide comments about George and C2C helped at all - he needed to focus more on his show and his guests. The whining at the start about the guest C2C had on and how offended he was - really it seemed childish to me in the re-telling.


Just my humble opinion.

Of course- the only way it will work for Art is if he has full control and probably at this stage in his life he does not have the heart for all it would take to accomplis that.

However, with all respect to him, Keith Rowland is not going to make this happen. It is not the old world, it takes "new media" people. I am not claiming I could make this work either, other than technically. You need a serious awesome marketer/sales person more than anything.


That is correct and so very much has changed in 10 years - heck alot has changed in the past 6 months.

Oh I love these Hitler rants and had no idea they have come up with this allready - thank you.

I should not say this but one of my favorites is the one about Sandra Fluke. I just couldn't post it because it's so nasty but I must admit I laugh and laugh and laugh some more on that one.

Oh good grief - this is really Art?

I feel sorry for his wife dealing with two children.

He's now saying he is going to stream for free from his website and let SXM have the feed for free. Says he doesn't need the money.



The are a lot of shows on there that do that.
